I am talking once again about the personal speakers made by Amazon and Google and Apple's personal assistant. I will be saying their words out loud. So you might wanna mute their microphones before we go any further. Okay. Folks. I have a question that I just ask Alexa. I said, hey, what music should I listen to how about exploring some music from on shell depot a popular classical artist. I think you'll like no, thank you. Would you like to listen to something by the Oscar Peterson trio Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or James Taylor? Oscar Peterson trio please here's an album. You might like now that was fun. Wasn't it Amazon's personal sin just got chatty? With me, that's kind of unusual and something that we have seen. But you know, today, we're talking about music commands for personal assistance. Google will not chat with you. And neither will Siri. But Amazon does a pretty nice job of being your personal DJ. And at times like you heard there concern out pretty well. The key is knowing what to ask and refining your request until it gets it. Right. Once you're there, you are in better shape than a radio DJ because you really are way more likely to hear music that you like let's go over some of the commands that are pretty cool. I told you about what music should I listen to which just for the heck of it. Hey, Siri what music? Should I listen to? Here's some great music. You may have never heard. That wasn't the command. Hey, google. What music should I listen to I can search for popular music, new music or any kind of music in other words, it couldn't answer the question. Here's some other good commands that you should know play music. I like they all do this pretty well for Siri. It will only do it. If you subscribe to apple music Siri will only do it. If you subscribe, apple music, Google defaults to YouTube music, which is ad supported and Amazon will give prime members free limited Amazon prime music. Mike experience was Amazon did a better job of playing music that I liked if you ask a question like play the latest Ariana GRANDE album, shuffled all of them get it right on the first request. If you try having fun with lyrics of believe belieber, not is not very good at it. But Siri and Alexa. Our instance. Hey, Siri play the song that goes tell me something girl. Shallow by lady Gaga and Bradley. Super. So when I ask that question that Google got it wrong three times, it got it right on the fourth attempt. Same thing. When I use the phrase, you know, what I want in what I need baby. That's of course, by Cardi B and Bruno Mars from the song, please me Google decided I wanted to listen to respect by Irit, the Franklin the query play some happy music. Google plays the song happy by Pharrell Williams. That wasn't really what I had mind. Alexa in Syria. Actually, give me some happy music the play music. I haven't listened to in a while is a really weird request because Google plays a song never heard my life. It's if there hadn't been you by Billy dean, while I've asked this question to Amazon speaker over ten times in every time they respond with a syrupy ditty by the late. John Denver somebody. I never listened to never wanna listen to. And they don't even offer me a second opinion and apple response by choosing attract I've never heard of called. It's not you. It's not me by b Miller and. Six black. That is a weird request play a song. Listen to less Friday, Amazon. Does that really well Google plays a song that I didn't play last Friday or the week before or whatever? And apple plays me song. I also didn't listen to overall Amazon does a way better job than Google or apple when it comes to music if you're willing to ask for specific play this song play this album play this title play this playlist. They all do it. Well, but some of the detailed questions Amazon is winning this race hands down. What is your experience listeners? What are you finding with the personal systems when it comes to music? Let's talk about it on Twitter.
